KDEInit failing to launch non-KDE binary

Hi Bill,

I *did* have an extra binary in /usr/local/sbin, which I'd used to run ls -l against for the Mulberry mailing list guy. I've deleted that and

~/test$ ./mulberry
bash: ./mulberry: No such file or directory

...I assume "bash" is because that's the shell I'm using?

~/test$ whereis mulberry
mulberry:
~/test$ which mulberry
~/test$

(those last two had previously reported /usr/local/sbin, before I'd deleted that)

from a new bash session:

~/test$ ./mulberry
bash: ./mulberry: No such file or directory

and:

~/test$ which mulberry
~/test$ whereis mulberry
mulberry:

> finally run ldd mulberry

~$ ldd mulberry
ldd: ./mulberry: No such file or directory
~/test$ ldd mulberry
not a dynamic executable

Hey, that might be useful info?

I'm running 64bit, and Mulberry worked fine on 64bit Kubuntu 11.10. I've never had a problem like this before, but this 12.10 install is brand new. I've got to make dinner for my 3 year old, but I'll try sudo apt-get install ia32-libs after that.

Actually, I have had an experience where an application that had stopped being maintained eventually stopped working. For a while, K/Ubuntu was including some old KDE3 libs with KDE4 for backwards-compatibility but they eventually dropped them (there's the trinity desktop project that could help with this issue, but they don't have a repository for 12.10 yet). So, maybe it's a missing 32bit lib problem, but maybe they've silently (at least, they didn't warn me, personally! ;-) ) dropped a KDE3 lib they'd kept around that Mulberry was using? Just a thought. Anyway, more in a bit, and thanks again for your help!

-Dan

(Okay, my brain's not working today either - of course Mulberry isn't using KDE libs, it's not a KDE app - sorry. Just thinking about dropped libraries)

I run ldd on the executable no problem on my 64bit system, it should (I believe) show missing dependencies - no idea why it doesn't run for you

in folder ~/test run file mulberry it should say it's a ELF 32bit LSB executable

you might want to try the Kubuntu forums and in problem description note it's a 32bit executable on a 64bit system

~/test$ file mulberry
mulberry: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, stripped

I'm installing a ton of 32bit libs now...

I posted that last while the 32bit libs were still installing, and ran it again and noticed with a quick glance that some of the hex values are different, so maybe the output of this is dependent on those libs?

did you try running mulberry now that the 32bit libs are installed?

please mark as solved

if it ran before the upgrade then the upgrade messed up by removing instead of updating the existing ia32-libs, sounds like a bug

really poor error messaging on this kind of problem, totally not helpful

you should also post the solution on the Mulberry mailing list

There was no upgrade, it was a clean install of Kubuntu 12.10 on a new disk (it's still working fine on another disk with 11.10 on it, which I'll be reformatting now). I'll let the mailing list folks know. Thanks again for your help!
